@julies1949: Ohmigosh! I love cheese but that’s a LOT of cheese…haha!

You can also do a chocolate fountain but I suspect you want a healthier alternative. To be honest, you don’t need wedding cake at all. I know some bees who have skipped it altogether and opted for a dessert/cookie/sundae/ice cream/pie/etc. buffet.

@julies1949: I saw a similar picture of a “cheese” cake like a year ago and have been obsessed ever since. I thought FI and my mom would be on board with it since they both love cheese and are pretty meh about cake, but they totally shot me down. So sad.

You’re right-It is a lot of cheese!!

Here’s one where the wheel is sliced into narrower sections:

We had a smaller wedding, but we did a rice krispy treat cake (which is what Hubby wanted) and then a few desserts (homemade cream puffs, cherry cobler, fruit fondue and my favors were homemade sugar cookie sandwiches. We also did s’mores.

We did both, in case people were non-sweet or non-cake eaters. Our caterer had platters that were sort of S shaped – they looked very pretty.

Here  are some more wedding cakes made out of cheese (specifically my very favorite…Humboldt Fog made by Cypress Grove Chevre in Northern CA).  I remember seeing this a few months ago.  It could also be decorated with fruit instead of only flowers.  I’m sure pairing it with fruit & wine would be delicious!  What an interesting alternative.  It also has that “wedding cake look”.
